As we emerge from Covid-19 with the vision to Build Back Better, many organisations are embracing new business models including collaboration across private and public sectors along with the challenge to achieve better social value.

In September 2020, the momentum was further accelerated for businesses bidding for public contracts with the launch of the UK Government’s Procurement Policy Note – Taking Account of Social Value in the Award of Central Government Contracts (PPN06/20).

On 27th April at 12pm, join an experienced panel who will discuss valuable insights into what it’s all about and share practical guidance on how to demonstrate social value in competitive tenders for the public sector generally.

The discussions will cover:

  • The law as it stands – PPN06/20
  • What is the social value model?
  • What about Wales?
  • The Circular Economy.
  • What is the point of it all?
  • Best practice in tenders
  • Benefits for tenderers and commissioners
